You and the rest of the nation may have just bought a new Instant Pot, a pair of Sony headphones, and, according to our data, a small mountain of super-strong umbrellas on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The top 5 best deals of Amazon’s 12 Days of Deals so far:

1. Best Echo deal: Echo Dot, $25 (originally $50) [You save $25]

The smallest and most affordable Echo speaker is a great entry device into the world of Alexa. Its speakers may not be as powerful as the more advanced Echo models, but it’s a convenient smart speaker nonetheless. 

2. Best headphones deal: Sony WH1000XM3 Noise Cancelling Headphones, $278 (originally $350) [You save $72] 

One of our favorite pairs of noise-canceling headphones is at its best price ever. For under $300, you’ll get a powerful set of headphones that won’t just cancel out surrounding noise, they also actively adjust ambient sound based on where you are and what noise is around you.

3. Best home security deal: Ring Alarm 5 Piece Kit, $139 (originally $199) [You save $60]

Get this security system that allows you to add alarms to windows and doors, and you’ll also get an Echo Dot ($25 value) for free. The Ring Alarm is really easy to set up, with no tools or professional installation necessary, and you can manage the alarm through your phone’s Ring app. It also works with Alexa for added hands-free convenience. 

4. Best air purifier deal: Coway Airmega 400 Smart Air Purifier, $310 (originally $749) [You save $439]

Insider Picks reviewed and loved this air purifier for its ability to self-adjust depending on the air’s pollution level without interfering with how quiet it is. It doesn’t get discounted often and when it has, prices hover around $465, so this is a noteworthy deal. Coway also makes the top air purifier pick in our buying guide.

5. Best robot vacuum deal: Ecovacs Deebot 500 Robot Vacuum, $135 (originally $280) [You save $145] Better price than Cyber Monday 

Robot vacuums are fast, thorough, and keep floors dirt- and dust-free with minimal involvement from you. You’ll be able to schedule cleanings through the app or Alexa/Google Assistant. Surprisingly, it has an even better deal right now than on Cyber Monday — it’s a little more than 50% off.
